Margo McIntosh on today’s “Sustain Ontario” debate about raw milk

Today Sustain Ontario hosted a debate, which was more like a conversation about raw milk, and the political climate surrounding in it.  The debate over raw milk has been going on for over 20 years in Canada.  We tend to hear more about the USA on our news casts and have all been following the debates and raids in the USA with great interest.  It is time that Canadians get involved in our own food rights actions and educate ourselves.  This webinar was a great way to learn about the issues surrounding raw milk from both sides of the belief system.  All the participants were knowledgeable, courteous and articulate.  It was a very good discussion of all the aspects surrounding the debate about raw milk.  The webinar will be archived on the Sustain Ontario site shortly for those of you who were not able to see it.
